I believe this to be one of the best pieces of writing I have ever read.

It is truthful and insightful and, in a really weird way, beautiful.

It is certainly art, as I understand art.

I am sending it to people.

To CJ HOPKINS

Your piece especially the “unseen monsters” section inspired me to write the following poem from your thoughts. I hope that is ok???

“UNSEEN UBIQUITY”???

In shadows deep, the monster lies,

A shapeless form with countless eyes,

It knows no name, no flag, no creed,

But feeds on power, greed, and need.

It shifts and morphs, a chameleon's guise,

A silent force that blinds our eyes,

To see the truth, to break the spell,

To shatter chains, escape its cell.

It paints the world with shades of fear,

And whispers lies for all to hear,

A puppeteer of unseen strings,

It pulls our fate, controls our wings.

But in the darkness, hope remains,

A spark of light amidst the chains,

For those who dare to stand and fight,

To challenge wrong and seek what's right.

So let us rise, and face the beast,

With courage strong, our hearts released,

For in our unity, we'll find the key,

To break its hold and set us free.

Together, hand in hand, we'll stand,

Against the monster's dark demand,

And build a future, bright and true,

Where freedom reigns and dreams renew.

Fantastic writing! Thank you! Need to read it again a couple of times. I especially love how you describe the monster. Like a utopia in the original greek sense. It has no place, because it's everywhere. It sometimes even sounds buddhistic.

This monster is indeed fed by Gleichschaltung, by being oblivious to people and rationality instead of passion and daring to speak up. Instead dare to discriminate and be discriminated (again in its original sense)! Allow ourselves to be radical by indeed going to the root, to the essence. Esse, to be. To be means being different against a canvas of nothingness.

I have been fighting, but nothing seems to matter. It doesn't seem to make a difference anymore. How can politicians stay in power so long, even when they've been proven to be monsters? Why are people so indifferent? I wonder if this is also the result of more and more psychopaths taking control of the neuralgic point of power.

Maybe we should not think about things worth dying for (e.g. in a war) but instead about things worth living for.

Edit: Minor clarification.

Good question.

"How can politicians stay in power so long, even when they've been proven to be monsters?"

Biden’s approval rating is 38%, but 83% of democrats think he’s doing a great job. The base is praising him for trying to cancel student loan debt, but forget that it was Biden who made an impossible to discharge it through bankruptcy.

The same monsters in congress have been there for 4-5 decades because people keep voting for them no matter what they do or how many wars they start. They have reduced the American dream every year, but still people vote for their tribe out of willful blindness?

Some good example! Similar in Germany: E.g. after Andreas Scheuer wasted billions of tax payer's money for his knowingly illegal (in the EU) toll road project, citizens STILL voted for him (~31% of the votes), so he still won the elections in Passau. Especially in Bavaria, I just don't get it why they always seem to be voting for the same corrupt and braindead politicians year in and out. And don't get me started on every broken promise of the (olive-)green party...

Well, I think Bonhoeffer got it right when he called it the "collective stupidity" of the masses, the "human defect" that prevents openness to reason or facts; the "monsters" have always been among us and often appear normal and human but are, in reality, potential psychopaths; only now the evil is all pervasive, global in scope and the evildoers have taken over because we allowed them to.

Expand full comment

Bonhoeffer saw a specific aspect of the human condition - the darkest aspect of it. As a German I once took comfort having descended from poets and thinkers - both are art. "Gleichschaltung" is also an art - albeit a dark version that peruses the tendency of people to go with the masses/majority. Nobody had to tell the youth of my time to do as everybody else did. Of course we needed snake skin imitation plateau boots in the seventies. The golden rule my Mom repeated at worthy occasions was "don't jump in the water only because everybody else does". (Grew up at a lake...) Although it might be a stretch, but the one aspect of the human condition that has rendered so many helplessly following the crowds, is definitely part of human evolution. And even if the impression exists that today's Gleichschaltung is more successful than all the attempts before in human history - the truth is that more people than ever before are not jumping into the water because some obviously corrupted mass told them so.

Especially in Germany - based on its post poetry and thinking history - the Streisand effect is doing in the ampel'sche Gleichschaltungsfrenzy. At that, Nature - or Evolution as You may call it - is the greatest Artist of them all. Inviting each and everyone to ponder about the ascension - as so often depicted - of man from the earthen sludge towards upright carrying of a weapon. My favorite question to those in the whirlwind of confusion remains the same: "Tell me Your opinion about when Evolution was finished."

Constricted by the policies of the Global Ampel, I lack the means to create a new version of the well known image "from the muck to the upright walking warrior" - adding the cremated atomic warrior.

Germany should be grateful to have such an amazing thinker as CJ Hopkins among their people - as thinking has clearly been declared an act of terrorism by the Ampelmänner und Ampelfrauen.

A very thoughtful comment! Nature or Evolution is the greatest Artist of them all: a very insightful statement, indeed! I am reminded of psychologist Erik Erikson who reminded us that as a species we are unfinished or incomplete human beings and that growth into mature adulthood may take a lifetime; we are artists of our own creation and the first work of art we are responsible for is a fulfillment of self that honors the gift of life granted to each of us.

🎯 fighting the system locks in the system. Inventing new systems is the power they don't want us to own. That is the real art ... the creation of the new ... and they cannot do it. They are not wired so. All they can do is try and trick us into staying in the fight of it. They're very good at that trick.

While I won't call it GloboCap as an umbrella - though it is a big player - this reads spot-on to me. There's big money to be made in manufactured wars when on each side in all of them.

I was in the political-power system myself for two decades. I learned how it works, intimately inside it, mostly US state level, some federal, the occasional international dynamic. Some of the most influential and powerful know/knew me by name, would literally cross a street to say hello to me if they saw me.

But I kept a little too much Pollyanna in me to truly be a part of it; I hoped for, wanted, expected it to be better, closer to the ideals I was taught to believe.

It was about fifteen years into my political career I experienced just how far from the ideals I had when I was targeted for taking a stand against The System. My Pollyanna became a threat to it that had to be repelled.

I survived that, but my effectiveness was diminished and the ceiling above me was solidified. This was when I turned to my local art community. It was where I found sanctuary and a temporary escape from the nasty world inside the belly of power and privilege. I had never explored my creative side, at least not since elementary school. And I was lost, uncertain, apologetic for not being a better artist. But I was among creative's who encouraged me, welcomed me, helped me transition to a new way of thinking, expressing my talents.

I remember a couple of years into this transition, when I was still working in politics but shifting away into the creative sphere when I broke down, shattered, the realization of what The System truly was, incapable of reform, so much of what I had invested my life into believing and being a part of was laid bare in my mind. Creative friends supporting me queried how it could be any other way. And asked why I was taking it so personally when it wasn't a reflection of my values I was disturbed by, it was The System. I had nothing to be ashamed of or embarassed about. I had maintained my values while in it and was the better for it.

That wasn't fully true. There were times I succumbed to the herd, went along to get along, took shortcuts, entertained visions of grandeur. It is seductive. Power and access to it is intoxicating. Corrupting in the corruptible. Which is most people. But I came through it mostly unscathed, many accomplishments over my career I'm proud of, and I can still look at myself in the mirror, into my eyes and love the person looking back at me.

But it took the creative's to help me step away from that world before it either shattered me or consumed me into it. The art I create today and share with the world around me gives me great joy. The faces that light up when others see it, especially the faces of children, who tug at their parents and say they want to learn how to create the type of art I share fills my heart and soul with joy. To inspire others to art is my favorite pastime, my hobby. It's where I turn when I put down the research and work that pays my bills. It is, as you describe, how I fuck with the monster.

Celente grosses me out more. As soon as I hear the words, I am not anti-Semitic I am highly suspicious. I was worried that Russians would be harassed in the beginning of the war. I was relieved when it didn't happen. I know a Uighur who has family in a camp in China. (He also told me that the Biden family corruption was well known. ) I tried discussing the internment of Uighurs with a noted speaker for Ron Paul and the guy treated me like I was a delusional kook screaming at me. It has left me very cynical.

And yet… Art is what the great Empires have left us. Egyptians, Romans, the terra-cotta armies of China…

So, is Art the skeleton that remains, or the flesh and blood which gave life and reason to the cults of death, which is what most empires are? And the big question about today’s Empire: what will it leave for the future? Golden Arches? Massive yachts of the oligarchs? We’re not building Pantheons, or Pyramids, or Taj Mahals. It’s a blank, fake culture. Chauncey Gardener is our Ozymandias. When power is buried deep in hidden mines, even our rulers are made of paper. All of which makes me value the work of artists even more. It’s not for nothing, CJ, go write another hammer and shape another day.

Inspiring - in a sense - a veritable Sunday morning sermon. As far as the current US campus protests on Gaza - it is in a way cathartic to see the overt police state moves - automatic weapons on full display against a crowd of protesters who collectively probably never touched a firearm in their lives. The whole COVID totalitarianism was not just a figment of the imagination.

yes, true - and as far as we know, we have not had global technocracy before - but then we are an ignorant species, and archaeological digs and explorations have uncovered civilizations much older than imagined so we know nothing really about how long 'it' has been going on but certainly as long as humanity. I also think these globalist power players have been in charge and connected by some kind of technology not available to the people for a lot longer than 30 years.

Hopkins is wrong to depersonalize the control machine, to say it has no head. The Rockefellers and the Rothschilds are at least major areas of its brain. The US DoD is also a major executive. And he is wrong to assert there is no truth. Physicists know about observation and developing descriptions of observation that withstand scrutiny; this is truth. Just because some phenomenon (eg the development and deployment of a toxic mRNA gene manipulation that kills millions) is not observed does not mean it does not exist, does not mean it is a fiction, does not mean it cannot be inferred, does not mean its perpetrators will remain invisible. Hopkins’ ironic chic is intellectually lazy, self-aggrandizing, and ultimately without effect, pointless, even though it certainly has a cool affect.

What he has to say, at least in good part, is important. I just find the absence of any faith in objective reality sad and/or ignorant and/or foolishly arrogant. The universe existed before us and will continue to exist long after we are dead and gone. We are an epiphenomenon of (a very small part of) the universe. The universe appears to obey rules, is at its basis a machine (but that *does not* imply that epiphenomena within it are necessarily mechanistic). From this it follows that there *is* objective reality, that there *is* objective truth, that there *is* agency, that there *is* action, that there *is* responsibility, that there *is* culpability, that there *can be* disempowerment.

And objective reality is at the heart of the current moment. WWIII is in good part an information war in which one side is trying to deny objective reality (in who is committing genocide, in who is a woman, in what is a treatment and what a toxin). C J Hopkins does that one side’s work by not grappling with the fundamental truths that follow from our existence within an objective reality.

Expand full comment

To Howard I want to say it isn’t about sides. There’s something important I left out of my previous reply and that is that the monster *is not* in all of us. During WWII the US military found they only some 30-40% of troops could bring themselves to fire their weapon to kill another human being (I forget the exact figure but it is on the small side). Those of us who have tried, for example, to put a poisoned rat out of its misery, know how hard it is even to kill another mammal, let alone a human being. In the Us military case the result of promotion within a pyramid is that it functions as a concentrator for psychopathy, resulting in a JSoC populate entirely by unfeeling and manipulative murderous liars. Look at their responses to Congress during the 9/11 hearings. This reality, that most of us can’t, let alone don’t want to, kill another human being, is something Hopkins doesn’t allow himself to celebrate. It is not a weakness. If only becomes a weakness if we lose our self respect and, crucially, if we lose the courage to stand up to those malign broken unfeeling monsters in our midst that we *are* better than. As Leonard Cohen said do memorably in The Future, love is the only engine of survival. The war mongers create nothing. They are sad broken parasites, bullies, thugs. I have no fellowship with them. We have no fellowship with them. And their rule should be intolerable, unacceptable, to all of us others who can love, who can create, who can feel, who can tell the truth, who can find self respect, who can be altruistic, who are humane.

I love CJ, since I discovered him a couple of years before the start of the scamdemic. And still do. Blowouts with say, "Counterpunch," are all to his credit. But I do see the one large point you are trying to make here. No, not all "evils" are "equally evil" might be another way of putting it, NOT referring to things like "who is the less evil candidate," but yes, referring to the LONG contexts and contrasts behind the "mass murders" by "Hamas" (even accepting the standard description of who they are and the mostly provenly exaggerated or false numbers of Oct. 7 "terrorist" murders and beheaded babies) as compared with the murderous state policies since that day (forget about 100 years prior). Why not extend the "transcend all sides" stance toward the covid nightmare also? I mean, big pharma, the NIH, CDC, too many doctors have always been monstrous in their preference for power and profit over actual health and well being? What's new? Why "take sides" now? Etc.

Howard, please see my subsequent comment.

There are many different lenses through which we may view the same objective reality. I agree with your assessment that there is a head of the snake, but I also agree with CJs view that there is no head. The truth, it seems to me, is that the only way folks like the Rockefellers and Rothschilds can exist is because we have collectively projected our own shadow onto them. They would have absolutely no power if we hadn't given it to them. The problem then lies with each of us, perhaps even more than it does with the individuals who happen to be occupying the top of the pyramid.

Fix us, fix the world. The head of the snake will vanish like a puff of smoke just as soon as, but no sooner than, we wrestle with the snake that lies within our own hearts and minds.

Expand full comment

agree in measure, though the "objective reality" part is decided in the end by the collective agreement on what it is. Unfortunately, the cabal / monster / Rothschilds club is extremely masterful in manipulating and controlling the collective agreement on reality. Agree, that's the real war right now. And yes, it has perpetrators ... it's not amorphous. There are people(ish) deciding global directions. Catherine Austin Fitts calls the monster Mr. Global. But there are also the internal beliefs ... preprogrammed from history's collective agreements, from family history, from life history ... that are agreeing to (to a lesser or greater degree) the perpetrators' preferred narrative as they go about forming the collective's agreement on "reality." Freeing ourselves of these programmed internal beliefs -- deleting them -- and holding our own ability to determine and in fact choose what reality we're building is part of our own individual work. CJ is masterful to me in shaking off the dust covering up the delete button. The more we use it the more we are in control of this reality determining.

Have you read Paul Kingsnorth's series on Substack about the Machine? I think you and he (and me, though i do not have a Substack, but lots of us) are thinking the same way. There is a giant machine eating up our nations, our traditions, our safety, our young men, our religion, our health... and giving nothing back. If we are all cogs in a machine, it is time for sabotage. And a few broken cogs can paralyze a machine, you know.

What deprogrammed my mind. I worked as a music teacher for two years in occupied Palestine. When you see the way palestinians live, like under permanent lockdown, with no freedom of movement. Military checkpoints between every town in the West Bank. Israeli soldiers talk to palestinians as if they are subhuman. I saw young freckly red headed IDF soldiers armed to the teeth with machine guns, harrassing old middle eastern men asking for their papers, on a weekly basis, on my bus journeys from Ramallah to Bethlehem, on the secondary roads the palestinians must use- the highways are reserved for settlers, who live in the West Bank yet have different number plates. Or on my way to Jerusalem, through the separation wall, where west bank palestinians are not allowed to visit without a special permit, despite East Jerusalem being supposedly palestinian.

In my experience the palestinians were a gentle peaceful people. I think anyone who has actually been to Palestine would agree to this. The problem is not many people have actually witnessed what is going on there. My collegues were dancers and musicians. For them to resist the occupation was simply to exist. Not to leave. Most of them had been imprisoned by the IDF at some point in their lives and tortured. Life does have meaning there. Palestinians have been resisting an illegal and brutal occupation for all their existence.

For the last 200 days Israel has used artificial intelligence and the highest military technology to terrorise 2.3 million people living under siege in Gaza. The equivalent of the destruction power of two nuclear bombs has been used on a civilian population, half of whom are children.

Every day children have had limbs ampuated, sometimes without anesthetic, since Israel has intentionally destroyed the hospitals.

Palestinians have no army. No tanks. No airforce. How on earth can this be called a war. Israel has revealed its true genocidal face. They want all of the land, and since palestinians refuse to give up, they are exterminated. With the complicity of the western governments and media.

There are certainly no nuances. One side occupies the other. One side is exterminating the other. Israel was founded on ethnic cleansing. To lazily say humans have always been at war, yet not be aware of the historical facts, documented by israeli historians such as Ilan Pappe, is to validate the opressor.

For whatever reasons CJ Hopkins has chosen not to speak about the Gaza massacre. Yet the monster is exterminating children. The monster targets poets. The monster has upped the carnage and the inhumanity and the suffering to levels never seen. The monster has manufacted a famine. And every comment on this page seems to be ecstatic they don't have to worry about that. You think you can resist globocap, while ignoring Israel. Please don't normalise absolute horror.

I correct my sentence. "Chosen not to write very much about Gaza since your October and November articles". Which I did read. They made an impression on me, partly from the massive amount of respect I have for you as a covid dissident writer. You were a beacon of sanity and i will always be grateful.

I haven't experienced the hate machine. I listen to the many anti-zionists jews. For exemple Norman Finkelstein, a descendant of holocaust survivors, documented the last 15 years of the siege of Gaza, called it a concentration camp, and believes that the palestinians had exhausted all options of non- violent resistance. Liberation movements have historically resorted to barbarism and terrorism as extreme measures when the fight is unequal. That is not to condone the massacre of innocent civilians. It is abhorrent. But precisely to avoid more massacres, wouldn't it be better to address the fundamental issue of where the violence comes from? The occupation. For israelis to live in peace they need to treat palestinians as equal human beings with rights. And respect international law.

Seven months into the genocide, I don't think it is possible to label both sides as propaganda. Israel was bombing Rafah last night. Palestinians don't need propaganda. They are being mass murdered and starved to death. They don't need to manipulate the truth. International law is on their side. Israel commits every war crime possible, including targeting journalists. Israel lies systematically about almost everything, from beheaded babies to terror headquarters under al Shifa hospital.

Palestine is the testing ground for the new reality globocap wishes to implement. I know a professional dancer who has been imprisoned for facebook posts. Visual recognition technology is used to scan faces at the checkpoints. Artificial intelligence decides who to bomb associating data and dumb bombs, killing entire families.

Palestinians are already living a dystopic nightmare. They have been resisting occupation for 75 years. Mostly non violently. I think we can learn much from their humanity and their lack of hatred, in our own resistance.

Thank you for the correction. I don't mind your criticism. I'm just tired of people misrepresenting my views and actions. And I am well aware of the history of the foundation and expansion of the State of Israel, and the suffering of the Palestinian people, and the different forms of opposition to Israel that have been employed by various entities over many years, and the broader (i.e., global) context in which that conflict has taken place, and is still taking place.

I must reply now! (I've seen there is a response from CJ Hopkins, but first things first.) Thank you so much.

I live in Spain. Here, there is not so much understanding for Israel, or israeli govetnments' policies, and a lot of sympathies for Palestina. Here, you can speak about genocide. In fact, there is an ad when you are at 'yutube', which openly raises funds for the victims of the genocide. Interesting enough, using 'the' moster censoring platform for this.

Germany is another place. People not only obey, they expect everybody to obey. To chose to not obey, does what it did to CJ Hopkins and the cover art of his book. Though he obeyed, it was not enough.

He does not look like he is obeying. Not enough, to german eyes.

You need much more Mut (courage?) in Berlin than in Madrid.

On the other hand, germany needs courageous people. Even when certain words are punished, prohibited.

How do we prevent the beginning of whatever desaster in the future, if we can't speak our minds, can't compare to past times?

Thanks, again!
